To this day, the LGBTQ+ community, and especially LGBTQ+ people of color, continue to suffer from housing discrimination — in California, and across the nation. Only 21 states have explicit nondiscrimination laws to protect LGBTQ+ people from housing discrimination!
Earlier this month, we celebrated Pride with a historic ruling by the Supreme Court that protects LGBTQ+ employees from being disciplined, fired, or turned down for a job based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. On Wednesday, July 1, join us, Equality California, and Freedom for All Americans as we unpack what the Supreme Court ruling means for the LGBTQ+ community when it comes to housing discrimination.
Join California YIMBY, Equality California, and Freedom for All Americans to hear from an expert panel about housing discrimination for the LGBTQ community and what the Supreme Court ruling means for protections moving forward. Panelists include:
– Amy Mello, Vice President of Campaigns, Freedom for All Americans
– Brad Sears, David Sanders Distinguished Scholar of Law & Policy, Williams Institute
– Adam P. Romero, Deputy Director of Executive Programs, California Department of Fair Employment and Housing
– Rick Chavez Zbur, Executive Director, Equality California
– Vincent Jones, Senior Political Advisor, California YIMBY (moderator)
